Formerly the hub of all farming activity on the Estate, the Old Mill House is being faithfully restored and extended to help accommodate the distillery’s development. Steeped in history and built using local Wicklow granite, the bell that adorns the northern west wall was originally used to herald the daily lunchbreak to workers in distant fields.

Being one of the older buildings on the Estate, it boasts an ancient water mill deep in its foundations.

Forsyths Stills
The Old Mill House Bell
Three custom-designed copper pot stills from world renown Forsyths of Scotland form the Distillery centrepiece. Uniquely shaped by skilled craftsmen, these copper stills are made in much the same way as they were in 1800’s when the Mill House was in daily use and Forsyths first began producing copper stills!
